This is my most requested recipe. It’s changed lots over the years, but I’m pretty sure it came from the source of many great recipes – the church potluck. There is a ton of chicken in here and we eat it as a main course. If you don’t have left over chicken, cook 3 bone-in breasts at 375 degrees for 35 minutes.
Prep time: 15 minutes
Total time: 1 hour (to bake chicken)
Yield: Serves 4–6 as a main dish
3 hearts of romaine
cooked meat of 3 chicken breasts, or of 1 whole roasted chicken
1 1/2 c. raw, dry roasted, slivered almonds
4 scallions, cut in half length-wise, then thinly sliced on a diagonal
1 recipe Sweet and Savory Dressing
- With a sharp knife, cut the hearts into 1/2 – 1″ slices and clean thoroughly.
- Remove meat from chicken with your fingers. Shred into bite-sized pieces and add to lettuce.
- Add almonds and scallions and nearly all of dressing, but don’t overdress the salad. You can always add more. Serves 4 as a main course.
